This article is part of our NFL Draft series.
With the Combine concluded, here is an updated list of dynasty rookie QB/RB rankings. Look for the WR/TE portion to go up on Tuesday or Wednesday. These rankings will be the last update before the draft, but things will of course shake up again once we know where any of these guys are actually playing.
The players are listed in descending projected fantasy value, and each player will have an NFL comparison with a round projection in the 2017 draft.
1. Deshaun Watson, Clemson (6-foot-3, 221 pounds)
I don't know what to make of the concerns over Watson's throwing velocity at the Combine and the Clemson pro day, but my instinct is to mostly ignore them. Watching Watson's tape, it's hard to find an inadequacy in his velocity. His arm isn't a cannon like what Pat Mahomes has, but Watson routinely threaded tight windows thanks to his combination of anticipation and spatial intelligence. Watson's arm might limit him from thriving in certain schemes, but those schemes probably weren't interested in him to begin with.
Meanwhile, Watson showed well with his accuracy at the Combine, and showed the workout metrics (4.66-second 40-yard dash, 119-inch broad jump, 6.95-second three-cone) necessary to project as a unique running threat in the NFL. Considering the way his athleticism forces defenses to alter contain and spy coverages, Watson's accuracy and athleticism probably offset any arm limitations.
